    Another fun read in the Resale Boutique Mysteries!

    I was first introduced to Debra Sennefelder via book three in her Food Blogger Mysteries and enjoyed it, so I wanted to give her Resale Boutique Mysteries a read. The first one in the series, Murder Wears a Little Black Dress, was really good. So when I saw she had book two, Silenced in Sequins, coming out I jumped on the chance to read it, and it’s as good as the first one! I don’t watch reality TV, but I can see the appeal, to be able to watch other people with lives crazier than yours can make you appreciate what you have. And getting a glimpse into rich people’s parties and homes is always appealing. Robin Leach took us on tours of the rich and famous years before reality TV became so popular. Even with not watching reality TV, Silenced in Sequins, was still a blast. And the way Sennefelder weaved in the deal that Kelly made with the TV star, Wendy, was the perfect set-up to make sure Kelly’s business continues to thrive in future books. Besides the main mystery, there is a smaller mystery that involves Kelly’s grandma and a trip to Vegas. I was very pleased with how it turned out because I wasn’t looking forward to this dragging on in future books. And talking about a thing that often drags on in Cozy Mysteries… the romance aspect is still being handled well in the Resale Boutique Mysteries. It’s progressing a bit, with a giant monkey wrench being thrown in for good measure. I think it’s excellent how Sennefelder was able to combine the usual lead detective’s annoyance with the amateur sleuth into the romance storyline. Although I knew the murderer early on, I didn’t know what the motive was until the end. And Sennefelder gives you enough suspects that could make guessing the killer difficult. I hope to see some of the suspects as recurring characters in future books. I could see Wendy becoming more friendly, and having her as a friend could mean more outrageous parties for Kelly and her friends. As with book one, Silenced in Sequins, adds just the right amount of details on clothes and accessories. This is a Fashion Cozy after all! Although I’m not much into fashion it was still enjoyable reading about the different outfits and the way Sennefelder described them made it easy for me to picture them. I’m looking forward to what mystery Kelly finds herself solving next, and highly recommend this series.

    Murderous Reality

    Christmas time is coming and Kelly Quinn is planning to make the most of the shopping season at her upscale consignment boutique. She’s off to a great start when a cast member of local reality show brings some designer duds in for consignment and they sell out quickly. What Kelly didn’t know was that a former cast member bought one of those designer gowns and wore it to a Christmas party that all the cast members are attending. It was an ugly moment between the two women who owned the dress at different times and the purchaser vows to put Kelly out of business. When Kelly goes to the visit the woman the next day to apologize and try to make things right, she finds the woman dead in her yard. Eventually the police arrest the woman who consigned the dress after finding the murder weapon in her car’s drunk. Promising to bring Kelly more upscale consignments from her friends, the woman is counting on Kelly to clear her name. But will Kelly be able to clear her name and save herself from the killer? A great second entry in the series. We all have a little fashionista in us and this series brings it out to the forefront. A well written and planned out whodunit with lost of viable suspects and red herrings. Can’t wait the next visit to Lucky Cove.

    Designer Clothing, Reality TV and Murder

    This cozy mystery is full of Long Island drama. Our heroine is dealing with diva drama as she tries to keep financially above water, a reality show, and a murder. There is so much going on in this story that the reader almost needs to take notes. It is a good story with a surprise ending. If you enjoy fashion and a good cozy mystery, you will love this series. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

    An entertaining and delightful cozy mystery!

    Kelly Quinn has inherited her grandmother's consignment shop and is determined to make it a success. She's thrilled to be given the opportunity to resell some gorgeous designer gowns from popular reality show star, Wendy Johnson. When Wendy's nemesis and co-star, Diana Delacourte buys one of the gowns and wears it to a party, the two reality stars get into a heated argument, and Diana threatens to ruin Kelly's business. Kelly feels really bad about the whole thing and decides to go to Diana's house to apologize. But when she gets there, she finds the woman dead in her yard. Wendy immediately becomes the main suspect and wants Kelly to help prove her innocence. Will Kelly succeed or will she become the killer's next victim? I thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced, entertaining second book in the Resale Boutique Mysteries. I haven't read the first book, but I found it very easy to like and relate to Kelly. She acted impulsively at times, but thankfully, she had a wonderful group of friends to talk some sense into her. I enjoyed the author's writing style and found the mystery to be well-plotted. There were plenty of suspects and red herrings to readers on the edge of their seats. I highly recommend this fun, fashion themed cozy mystery. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    I liked it.

    I received a free copy of SILENCED IN SEQUINS (Resale Boutique Mystery Book 2) by Debra Sennefelder in exchange for an honest review. Kelly Quinn is working to make a success of her grandmother’s consignment shop. She’s excited to be given the opportunity to resell some designer gowns, which came from reality television’s Long Island Lady, Wendy Johnson. When former Long Island Lady Diana Delacourte purchases one of the dresses and wears it to a Christmas party, the two ex-co-stars argue publicly. The following morning, Kelly visits the Delacourte home in an attempt to make amends but, instead, finds Diana deceased. Blackmailed and bribed into investigating the crime despite the detective’s warnings to stay away, Kelly tries to find the killer before she becomes the next victim. This was a good story. I had not read the first book, but I easily connected with the characters. I recommend this book to fans of MURDER WEARS A LITTLE BLACK DRESS, to fans of Debra Sennefelder, and to fans of cozy mysteries featuring fashion, socialites, reality television programs, and forbidden romance. #SilencedinSequins #NetGalley
